Policy and Payment


If the item is in the Goodies Japan online shop, it means I own the item already, and thus PayPal and credit cards are accepted for these items.

Currently Goodies Japan accepts Wise (formally known as TransferWise) as payment for on demand shopping. That means that if you ask me to buy you items that cost more than 10,000 yen, I require instant payments in order to purchase an item on your behalf, especially for items in high demand like trading cards. For items that collectively cost under 10,000 yen, PayPal and invoices using a credit card are acceptable.

Additionally, for online on demand shopping, I ask for a 15% commission fee on items up to 50,000 yen. For items that add up to 50,000 yen or more, I ask for a 10% commission fee. For on site shopping, please book me at least a week in advance. I take a 30% commission for shopping on site.

For items in the Goodies Japan online shop, I do not ask for commission. Commission does not include shipping costs. 

Shipping fees depends on its weight, your country location, and what shipping service you want to use. Please consult me on this to see what shipping options are available to you.

What does a personal shopper do? How is Goodies Japan different from proxy address services? Who is your distributor? Here I can answer all of the questions I commonly get. Didn't see your question here? That's ok, send me a message and I'll be happy to answer you.

  • What is a personal shopper?
    A personal shopper is someone who is hired to do shopping on your behalf. Either you direct the shopper exactly what you want to buy or you leave it to the shopper to find items fitting your description and show you available options to choose from. A personal shopper may shop either online (in this case websites in Japanese) or on site in Japanese shops. A personal shopper's duty is to make sure the client is happy with the purchases made on their behalf.
  • When are you available to talk?
    My working hours are weekdays, Mondays to Fridays Japan time, from 10 am to 4 pm, and 8pm to 10pm. National holidays and weekends on Saturdays and Sundays I am off duty. My online store is open 24/7, so feel free to have a look anytime.
  • How do I pay you?
    Goodies Japan accepts credit card payments, PayPal and Wise money transfers. For items in the online shop, credit card payments and PayPal are accepted. For on demand shopping, Goodies Japan requests that you use Wise to instantly transfer money needed to shop on your behalf for purchases over 10,000 yen. Please click the links to find out more about PayPal and Wise.
  • Why can you not accept PayPal or credit cards for on demand shopping?
    Wise is the best solution for on demand shopping for a few reasons: the transfer fees are the lowest, the transfer time is the fastest, and it allows me to shop using Wise's online debit card. This is especially useful for items in high demand like trading cards. Unfortunately, PayPal is highly regulated in Japan. Unlike other countries, it isn't accepted as a regular form of payment in Japanese shops. Japanese PayPal doesn't hand out debit cards for users in Japan. Additionally, PayPal tends to hold back one third of the money I receive from you and will not release it for up to two weeks, severely delaying the time I need to shop on your behalf. Additionally, money transfers from PayPal to my bank account, to which my debit card is connected to, takes up to six days. The biggest reason for these regulations is to prevent money laundering and tax regulations. For credit card payments, again the issue is time. If you are in need of an item that will be available for only a limited amount of time, receiving money from credit cards is also delayed and payouts are only once or twice a week. While I wish I could use PayPal and credit card payments as freely as other countries, the truth is I cannot. Wise is the best solution that has the best protections amongst the other money transfer companies available.
  • What happens to my money if an order goes wrong?
    You will have a choice: you can be totally refunded in your order, or you can use the refunded money to buy something else. When I shop online, I only use Japanese Mercari and Rakuten as my source. Mercari has its own protections put into place. The sellers on Mercari will not and can not be paid until the buyer receives the item and agrees to leave a good review for the seller. If the order was not satisfactory, I will put a complaint to Mercari in your place. Mercari will review the issue and refund the money to the buyer. At which point I will give you the option to either be refunded or use the money for something else. Rakuten is different from Amazon. Rakuten uses registered shops, not a giant warehouse, for selling goods. The shops must pay Rakuten a significant fee in order to have a presence on their website. This severely reduces the chance of buying an item that is fraudulent. However, if something does go wrong, I can contact Rakuten for support and ask for a refund. At which point I will give you the option to either be refunded or use the money for something else. If I am shopping on site in a Japanese shop, there is much less room for error. However, if something does goes wrong, I can ask for a refund at the shop as long as the item wasn't on sale for a reduced price. At which point I will ask you if you want a refund or use the money for something else.
  • How much is shipping?
    Shipping is dependent entirely on the country you live in, how much the items purchased way, and your preferred shipping method. Trading cards being shipped in an envelope to the US cost $6 with tracking, and $2 without. A box being shipped to the US is currently a minimum of $26 due to airplane availability from the pandemic. Shipping fees may change, so please ask me.
  • How else can I contact you?
    You can contact me either on my Facebook page or on WhatsApp if that is more convenient for you. I also have an email account at
  • How is Goodies Japan different from a proxy shipping service?
    The difference between Goodies Japan and a proxy shipping service is customer attention and product quality inspection. Most proxy shipping services will do exactly as you asked and ship the item you sent to their address to you. But what if you didn't understand the item description? What if the item was fraudulent? Goodies Japan will buy your items on your behalf, receive them, inspect them for quality and inform you that the products were good or not. For trading cards I will weigh the packets and boxes to make sure they match the intended weight. I will inspect to see if the shrink wrapping wasn't redone. I will communicate with the sellers on Mercari to make sure you are getting a genuine product. I will notify Mercari on your behalf if the product ends up being faulty. That is the biggest difference.
  • Where is my order?
    If two weeks have passed and your order hasn't arrived, most likely it is held up in customs. Some country's customs offices take longer than others. China in particular is very strict and can take a long time to process your package. Rest assured, I did send your package, and I am able to forward any documents relating to your package to you. Please double check to make sure that you sent me the correct address with no spelling or numerical errors. Please also include your phone number in case the post office needs to contact you. Though not required, I recommend you use tracking when you can to see where your package is. I also recommend paying a bit more for insurance in case your package is lost. Once I deliver the package, it is no longer in my hands.
  • Who is your distributor?
    The truth is, there is no wholesale prices available when it comes to trading cards in Japan. Especially when it comes to Pokemon cards, Nintendo is the only source for wholesale cards, and they are the only distributors. They have a tight hold on how they want their cards distributed, and trust only a few major Japanese chains to help sell their cards. Most of the time, they will announce a lottery to the public for their special limited edition boxes. Those in Japan have a short amount of time to apply for the lottery, and are only allowed one box per person. Then days before the boxes are released to the winners, the Pokemon Center may or may not decide to release the special set to everyone else with conditions attached. For example: one box per person, or one special promo card for every 1000 yen spent in the shop and up to 10 cards per person. This is why cards are now so expensive because of how Nintendo has decided to market and sell their cards. If you see cases of a pack of 12 for sale online, it's only because someone has a special connection with a chain store and that case was not meant to be sold to the public. If you see someone with 30 boxes for sale, it's because either that person went store surfing going to all the shops they could to buy it at the market price, or they also have a connection with a shop that is selling the boxes. Then the boxes sell out and they never put it back on the shelf again.
  • How do you get the cards?
    There are a few places I can go for limited boxes: Mercari, Card Rush, and Rakuten. These (Pokemon) boxes will not be for market price (typically 5800 yen), but since I do not own the stock I have no need to increase the price to make up for the amount I paid. I found it's cheaper for you to purchase the boxes directly through me then to pay for it when it's already made it to your country and the value increases 4 fold. One day, perhaps I will own a toy store and be able to make an agreement with Nintendo to sell the boxes and THEN I can sell them for a more affordable amount. But until that day, everyone else in Japan is in the same boat.
  • I want you to get this specific card for me...
    Yes, I can try to search for you. There are several ways I can look, online or on site at a trading card store. Again, I request that you use Wise for instant transfers so I can buy what you're looking for right away. Otherwise, you will have to wait a week at least for the transfer to be complete.
